LONDON CONVENTION CENTRE, LONDON, ON – July 7, 2018 – At TennoCon 2018, its third annual Warframe® convention, Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes unveiled today the follow-up to 2017’s epic update Plains of Eidolon with the sweeping open-world Venus expansion Fortuna, and doubled down with a dynamic new future update that launches players seamlessly into space for tactical ship-to-ship battles. Intent on satisfying the growing demand for Warframe’s free-to-play cooperative online action, Digital Extremes also announced earlier during “TennoLive” its official partnership with developer Panic Button to bring Warframe to Nintendo Switch.

The Fortuna Expansion
Bursting with an imaginative terrain and science fiction aesthetic, Fortuna is introduced with a whimsically synchronized musical video guaranteed to surprise and delight! The Venusian landscape packs exciting new gameplay experiences with the introduction of a new faction and lore -- the Solaris United faction and its struggle against their Corpus overlords -- and an expanded level of vertical gameplay.

Starting from the underground Colony of Fortuna where players pick up bounties and missions, Tenno (players’ in-game name) will ascend to the surface of The Orb Vallis to view an exotic new terrain blanketed with Orokin structures, towering mushroom stands, and oceanic flora. Tenno will be able to traverse the landscape more quickly with the Bondi K-Drive, a single-player hoverboard that nimbly jets across the landscape at the touch of a controller.

Key Features in Fortuna Include:

Codename: Railjack
Digital Extremes’ newest expansion is part of a grander vision. In addition to the open-world expansion of Fortuna, a separate future update takes Warframe down a totally uncharted path. ‘Codename: Railjack’ will enable 1-4 players to board a warship on land and ascend into space to explore and fight!

Players will coordinate responsibilities across the military spacecraft to engage in PvE combat against hostile enemies. The full space experience grants extensive player freedom with options to launch Archwings into space to board, infiltrate and destroy enemy ships during battles. This future update looks to create a cohesive gameplay experience betweenWarframe's open Landscapes, procedurally generated levels, and a new outer-space freedom in a unique sci-fi world.
Key Features in ‘Codename: Railjack’ include:
